Project FUTSAL graduate sets up a soccer coaching business

There have been countless good news stories about graduates from Project FUTSAL securing dream sports jobs and going on to do various degree courses. However, one particular graduate with a love of coaching and an entrepreneurial spirit has set up her own football coaching business and is using the skills, qualifications and contacts developed on the Ballymun project hub to shape her own future.


Michelle Watson graduated from Project FUTSAL in 2012 and spent an academic year on the Ballymun based hub. Michelle had an aptitude for coaching and her naturally outgoing personality meant that communicating with people came easily to her. Michelle approached the Northside Partnership for help in how to bring her football business idea to fruition and the following video link features Michelle chatting about how her business has developed recently.
